Artists Create and Are Manifestors of What they Objectively Desire

Artists Create & Are Manifestors of What they Objectively Desire....
Please ponder on this for a moment...
This is what I had wrote in a dream journal as I awoke from a dream the night before. This statement was on the title of a over sized book that appeared in my dream and it was the last thing I wrote down in my dream journal.

It never ceases to amaze me how clear the sub conscious mind is. There's a lot to mind that we don't fully know or yet alone understand. As an artist I find this very interesting, but back to my original thought, or the idea that's listed above ( Artists Create & Are Manifestors of What they Objectively Desire...) artists are creators and the prolific ones are always creating. Whether they create something recognizable or not is not the point, the point is they create from a zero point, that point is where everything begins. In other words create from nothing and turning it into something. The second part is are manifestors. To manifest is to bring into the existence of reality. What they objectively desire? Everyone has a desire for something, so it depends on how specific you want that desire to be as objectionable.

The artist uses material and changes its orientation function or purpose by reconfiguration or realignment for a new purpose and meaning of the essential material. As the artist uses a plethora of materials and chooses a specific material and changes its essential or basic properties by evocation; the materials new purpose provides meaning that's personal and of value to the artist.
Drawing is a way of seeing and relating to the world through understanding.
art,artist, image maker /creator, imagination, and image

Art without feeling is the practice of visually translating what is objectionably logical through the faculties of reason.

Is the practice of visual art strictly a way of communication that is between the viewer's eyes and cerebral cortex?

Visual art is a language that's understood by the eyes...

Visual art can do a lot.
evoke,provoke emotions
communicate ideas,thoughts,experiences,relations.
Is purely abstract art any more or less irrational than representational art?

As an artist, I have defined the work I do as nonobjective or abstract. The video title says it all, REFLECTION OF RESOLUTION. In this video piece, I have created an art work that may not need anymore further explanations...Right. Wrong, in this world we live in a world where we need to understand or have an understanding of everything in this world. This is definitely true in the art world where everything that is created and expressed is on a visual basis. In my opinion, the visual arts is the most misunderstood of all the other art forms. Why? Because it is an expression of the creator that is solely relied upon the visual world, and people need to be informed on how to see. Many people go through their lives and never stop to question what it is that they see, yet alone how it evokes an emotional response to what they are observing. My art video is simple and yet appears to be complex. Complex compositional y that is in the media in of itself. My intention in the title of this work, is to bring the viewer to question the nature of reflection, and the reflection of what. The reflection of the camera reflecting in on it self. There was some editing involved, as far as transitions and title were concerned. This brings up another issue in art. Should there be any editing in an artwork, as far as production and post production are concerned? I understand we live in a world where media is driven by post production and special effects which are at their prime.
In this recent video, I did
not want to get too caught up in the post production aspect of the video. In fact I believe I have struck an equilibrium between the two; in that I have left some familiar or those not so familiar icons on the screen. By reminding the viewer that they're viewing an art work that happens to be a video, and not something that has been put into a production company's special effects software. When viewing the video art work, I wanted to bring the viewer, to find the visual tension between what draws them into the picture plane of abstraction and at the same have ques or icons that bring them back into the reality or nature of what the work is in of itself. Will we ever be able to see art for what it really and truly is? Art and artists have to compete with so much, over visual stimulation. Will media and media driven culture cancel artists and their works out? As artists seek to connect their viewers to question the nature of observation, and seeing the world through the eyes of their creations, there will always be a cultural necessity; for that's why I feel there will always be a place for the visual arts and artists.
